Springtime Vintage

Good Saturday Evening to you all!  I had a stamping crop today and am now just getting around to posting one of the cards I made today!  What inspired this card was the stamping 411 sketch challenge!  It was a little different today and I almost did not do it, but once I finished the card I was happy I did.  

It took me a little digging to decide I just wanted to use this paper, Springtime Vintage instead of a stamped image.  More times than not, I think I need a stamped image, but it is not always necessary!  So all I stamped was the sentiment. 

Stampin" Up! Items Used:

Stamp Set: Perfect Punches
Card Stock: Rose Red, Very Vanilla, Not Quite Navy
Designer Series Paper: Springtime Vintage
Ink: Always Artichoke, Rose Red
Always Artichoke Seam Binding Ribbon
Extra Large Curly Label Punch, Extra Large Bird Punch

Thanks so much for looking and hope you have a wonderful evening!
